Everton team news: Richarlison fit, Calvert-Lewin still missing for clash with Leicester

Everton are hopeful they will have Richarlison and Yerry Mina available for the clash with Leicester, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin is still out injured.

The Toffees head to the King Power Stadium on Sunday [May 8th] sitting in the relegation zone, two points behind both Burnley and Leeds having played a game less.

But after a win over Chelsea last weekend, Frank Lampard has confirmed in his pre-match press conference that he expects to have the same squad available after some good recoveries during the week.

“No changes for us,” he confirmed.

“We had a pretty good week with recovery for the lads, a couple of little niggles but hopefully we’ll be the same as we were (for Chelsea).

“Richy’s got a bit of a sore ankle from when he twisted it at Liverpool. Hopefully he will be fine.

“Andre (Gomes) is back in the squad for selection, and Donny (van De Beek) is not. Ben’s not fit. Hopefully he will be training with us in the middle of next week.”


There was some doubt about the availability of the Brazilian after his winner against Chelsea, with Richarlison suffering with a lower leg injury.

But his recovery will come as a huge boost for the team at a time where they need stability and someone to lean on for goals and pressing from the front.

The absence of Calvert-Lewin is still a blow, because he is the best striker at the club and his presence alone causes opposition defence plenty of issues.

The Toffees will lean on the same group to try and earn back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since beating Brighton and Burnley in August and September.

It would also be their first away win since that Brighton game, and it’s vital to get points and stay in touching distance of the pack before playing their game in hand against Watford in midweek.
